The Tudor era, with its historical associations with English power and influence in the world at large, proved attractive to many consumers for several decades in the twentieth century, particularly in the inter-war years. This chapter discusses the vital roles that new manufacturing technologies and shifts in taste have played in the emergence of a Tudorist design demotic. It also considers why the past held such fascination for manufacturers and consumers.
